Under the cloud security requirements, vendors who want to be third party assessment organizations and cloud service providers must prove they have walled-off the two parts of their company.

OMB sets a six-month deadline for initial capabilities to be ready.

GSA's Dave McClure said a flood of documents will come as soon as OMB signs off on the cloud security guidance. McClure said among the documents will be the application for third party companies to become FedRAMP accreditors of cloud products and services.
Federal chief technology officer Aneesh Chopra says a 15-member working group is close to coming out with a report. It's been nearly six months since OMB ended the public comment period on whether to allow software to track users' habits.
